Here at the White Lion Inn we know what a pub should be like. After many years working hard eating and drinking in other pubs, purely for research purposes of course, we have used our extensive experience to offer you the very best traditional Dorset pub experience in the county, if not the world….. probably.
Due to popular demand we now have three beautifully appointed double rooms so that you can stay with us for longer. All our rooms have en suite bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities and a television. Sky sports and Movies our available in our two larger rooms.
The first thing that you’ll notice when you come into the pub is that it’s exactly how a great pub should be. Nothing fits and nothing’s normal – from the wonky flagstone floors to the even wonkier walls. The tables and chairs also sit at their own unique angles as do some of the more mature gents, sipping pints of what they will declare is orange squash.
But don’t be taken in by their gentile charm – in their glasses be scrumpy!! A local delicacy only recommended for the more experienced drinker among you, or those of you that have nothing to do tomorrow.
Our chefs have put together an imaginative and varied menu to suit all tastes so there will always be something you can’t resist. As we’re lucky enough to be in Dorset where some of the best farmers produce the greatest food, we always find the tastiest fresh, local produce to use in our menus. Let us do the hard work to bring the finest the county has to offer straight to your table.
Whether on business and just needing a bed for the night, looking for a relaxing weekend away exploring the area, or having spent too much time enjoying the scrumpy then come and stay with us and enjoy our hospitality to the fullest. A splendid cooked breakfast in the morning is of course a guaranteed part of the deal!
As if being probably the best pub in the world was not enough we are also located at the heart of one of the most beautiful and interesting parts of the West Country. As we are the most northerly Inn in Dorset we’re also very close to the borders of Wiltshire and Somerset, comfortably positioned close enough to the A303 to be a very welcome diversion from a drive between London and the West Country, while being far enough from the traffic to be a peaceful haven.
